Opening to the public on 16 October is Gates, the debut exhibition by Brisbane-based Artist and Photographer Bobbie Jones.
After experiencing the tragic loss of her stepdaughter in 2017, Bobbie Jones left her corporate career to pursue healing and purpose finding it in her passion for art.
"Time in nature allows us to reflect, observe and appreciate symbols and messages that we are too busy to notice in our daily lives. This country is incredibly unique and spiritual which is what I have tried to capture through these images, "said Bobbie.
The Gates project took Bobbie along 6000 kilometres of Australian roadway that many never travel to capture an artistic insight into gates and their silent stories.
Through this evocative showcase, Bobbie brings together over 100 quintessentially Australian gates that tell a story of culture, function, art, and power.
The Gates project is designed to provoke thought and reflection and is sure to leave you with a new perspective on gates.
Gates is presented at 'The Churn Room' in the Old Dayboro Butter Factory. It will be open to the public from 16 to 30 October 2022. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 9 AM - 3 PM (closed Mondays & Tuesdays).
Admission is FREE.

About Dayboro Butter Factory
The Dayboro Butter Factory started operations in November 1892 and was later destroyed by fire in May 1929. The factory at 38 Williams St Dayboro was rebuilt and opened a year later in 1930 before it closed permanently on June 30, 1965. The Historic Industrial building is now home to local businesses, including the Churn Room, an art space and retail store for a multi-faceted artisan community, including Bobbie's fine art business - Robyn Darling Images.
Dayboro is a rural town in the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland, Australia, approximately 45 kilometres north-northwest of Brisbane. Only an hour's drive from the Brisbane CBD or Sunshine Coast, Dayboro is a favourite destination for lovers of arts and culture, car and motorcycle clubs, weekend country drives, and adventurers. This quaint village might be small in size, but it's big in character with an array of cafes, art, antiques, gift shops, and historical buildings.
